Every year, I do 4 boudoir marathons, Marathons work well for my buisness because I am primarily a wedding photographer who loves to shoot boudoir. Marathons seem to give my clients the feel that they are getting a good value, therefore they are in high demand. My last Valentine's session sold out with 10 paid sessions. My upcoming Spring marathon sold out with 8 slots within 24 hours.
It took several years with many live and learn moments, but I am extremely proud that these shoots have become a staple in my busines today.
Know what I know now, avoid your own mistakes and learn how to rock your own boudoir marathons.
